Pooled Mouse Ig
Flow cytometry (Routinely Tested)
0.2 mg/ml
Aqueous buffered solution containing ≤0.09% sodium azide.

Preparation And Storage

Store undiluted at 4°C and protected from prolonged exposure to light. Do not freeze. The monoclonal antibody was purified from tissue culture supernatant or ascites by affinity chromatography. The antibody was conjugated with R-PE under optimum conditions, and unconjugated antibody and free PE were removed.

Recommended Assay Procedures

PE Rat Anti-Mouse IgM may be used as a primary or secondary reagent in immunofluorescent staining. For flow cytometric detection of intracytoplasmic IgM, we recommend FITC Rat Anti-Mouse IgM (Cat. No. 553437).

Product Notices

  1. An isotype control should be used at the same concentration as the antibody of interest.
  2. Caution: Sodium azide yields highly toxic hydrazoic acid under acidic conditions. Dilute azide compounds in running water before discarding to avoid accumulation of potentially explosive deposits in plumbing.
  3. For fluorochrome spectra and suitable instrument settings, please refer to our Multicolor Flow Cytometry web page at
  4. Please refer to for technical protocols.
  5. Since applications vary, each investigator should titrate the reagent to obtain optimal results.

The R6-60.2 antibody monoclonal antibody specifically binds to mouse Immunoglobulin M (IgM) of Igh-C[a] and Igh-C[b] haplotypes. It does not react with other Ig isotypes. The R6-60.2 antibody has not been shown to stimulate B-cell proliferation.

R-Phycoerythrin (PE), is part of the BD family of Phycobiliprotein dyes. This fluorochrome is a multimeric fluorescent phycobiliprotein with excitation maximum (Ex Max) of 496 nm and 566 nm and an emission maximum (Em Max) at 576 nm. PE is designed to be excited by the Blue (488 nm), Green (532 nm) and Yellow-Green (561 nm) lasers and detected using an optical filter centered near 575 nm (e.g., a 575/26-nm bandpass filter). As PE is excited by multiple lasers, this can result in cross-laser excitation and fluorescence spillover on instruments with various combinations of Blue, Green, and Yellow-Green lasers. Please ensure that your instrument’s configurations (lasers and optical filters) are appropriate for this dye.
